Lomond Hills and Central Fife

Lomond Hills and Central Fife

The central part of Fife is dominated by the shapely Lomond Hills. Benarty Hill and Bishop Hill both overlook the peaceful waters of Loch Leven, whilst adjacent to them is West Lomond - the highest in this part of Scotland, a hill of real character and a stunning viewpoint. Its neighbour East Lomond is perhaps the most loved of the range, rising with a steep dome-like summit to the south of the picturesque and historic village of Falkland.

On the southern side the Lomond Hills slope down more gently towards some of Fife's major towns: modern Glenrothes and the older, coastal town of Kirkcaldy. This area carries reminders of its mining past, but the Fife Coastal Path continues right around the coastline, linking industrial centres, harbours and sandy beaches. The north coast around Newburgh is much less populated, sloping down into the waters of the mighty River Tay.
